5 large cloves of garlic, smashed open. You can leave the skins on
2 bay leaves

TOOLS

Large pot with a tight- fitting lid

INSTRUCTIONS

PLACE all ingredients in a large pot
FILL with purified water leaving two inch margin at the top of the pot

ADD 1 TBSP of apple cider vinegar for every 2 quarts of water

COVER and bring to a boil
*This takes about 30 minutes if you have an extra large pot

SIMMER for 12 – 24 hours, checking every four to six hours and skimming the foam off the top, if needed

*There may not be any foam to skim off, the production of foam depends on a few factors in how the turkey was cooked and the initial temperature of water prior to heating it in the pot
*If you notice the water level decreasing, it’s ok to add water to bring level back up to 2 inch margin

STRAIN into a large bowl through a fine mesh colander or cheese cloth and discard everything that was in the pot. Your bone broth is ready!

Tips for Use: Drink it plain, use in a soup, or freeze for up to 3 months.
